CORNWALL – As government officials urge social-distancing to control the spread of coronavirus, the pandemic has claimed its first local event.

The 4th annual Wonderful World of Whisky Show, which was supposed to take place March 26-28 at Nav Center, has been cancelled.

It’s been rescheduled to March 25-27, 2021.

In a statement on its Facebook page, the Nav Center says any tickets purchased for the show this month will be honoured for next year’s event. Initially, refund requests were not being accepted. Later in the day, the center updated its post to say refunds could be requested through Eventbrite.
